Puncak Merapi, Yogyakarta Region

Trek up Puncak Merapi, an active volcano of grand proportions. Not for the faint-hearted or inexperienced, the walk up represents a challenge for even the most seasoned of hikers but, once at the top, the extensive views of the surrounding volcanic landscape make up for the energy expenditure. Book a guide to learn about the myths and history surrounding the volcano (and a well-timed pep talk when the hiking gets tough). Put Puncak Merapi on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Yogyakarta trip planner.
